Commercial, IP & Technology, Franchising
As a member of Swaab’s corporate, commercial and intellectual property practice I am passionate about helping my clients achieve their goals. My focus is on business advice, corporate and commercial transactions, commercialisation of intellectual property rights and brand protection strategies.
Having completed legal secondments to Ramsay Health Care and the Liberal Party of Australia (NSW), I provide guidance and advice that is well-considered and commercial.
I have industry focuses in the pharmacy, health care, luxury goods, FMCG and technology spaces, and act for a number of multinational companies looking to expand into Australia, as well as a number of local SME and ASX listed companies looking to grow both here and overseas.
I was a finalist for “Young Private Practice Lawyer of the Year” at the 2019 Australasian Law Awards, having previously won the 2017 Lawyers Weekly “30 Under 30” Award for commercial law in Australia. I was also previously a finalist in the 2017 & 2016 Australian Law Awards for “Young Gun of the Year” and 2015 “30 Under 30” Awards.
In 2017, I was named “Australian Young Lawyer of the Year” by the Law Council of Australia for not only my technical legal ability but also my contributions to the legal profession in the areas of wellbeing, diversity and inclusion.
